Finding out your little brother is now a father himself through your midwife cousin, who overheard the baby's mother brag about now being permanently connected to two Ministers for Magic and the Head Healer, certainly leaves an impression on you, and it isn't a good one. Kaia has already decided she doesn't like Deirdre O'Rourke, and has made it abundantly clear to Eleni via messages, who surprise surprise, also didn't know Florian had knocked someone up. Suffice to say, Kaia is pissed. She's angry and hurt that Florian didn't feel like he could trust any of his siblings, and even more that he's having to go through a legal battle to retain any rights to his own daughter. (She didn't mean to find out about that, either, but Merlin, who the hell brags about milking the Yaxley family's money through an infant? She's still fuming. What kind of mother treats their child like they're just one big monthly paycheck? A preemie baby, no less, who almost didn't even survive her own birth?) She isn't so sure Florian will get through this untraumatized. He's always been the sensitive Yaxley. But at least he has someone? Judging by the woman he came with? Eleni also didn't know about that, and it had taken Hudson's help to ensure she didn't just magically waltz through the hospital doors. She was being trusted with compiling as much information about these new developments as possible and relaying them to her sisters and other brother, which is what he's going to do now that Florian had asked for some privacy with Deirdre to presumably discuss their daughter's welfare. Kaia would personally check in with the healers assigned to the case a little bit later, but she doesn't anticipate any long-term issues from what she'd read on the chart. As she exits the room to give the new parents their privacy, Kaia zeroes in on Gracie very quickly. "Hi," she acknowledges curtly, looking vexed even though she's still feeling neutral about this new girl. She's never met her before, and Kaia doesn't want to jump to conclusions. But she is going to be nosy. It's her job as his older sister. "Are you a friend of Florian's?"

This entire day had given her whiplash and she think she was feeling a headache coming along. He'd given her the ring on the way here and it was perched on her ring finger. But she found it large and uncomfortable. Wrong. She also ended up covering it with her other hand as she stood outside the hospital room with Kaia. Kaia who looked...well, she looked like she could murder someone. And Gracie was hoping she wasn't that someone. She'd agreed to come because she figured Florian might need someone to support him. But then she saw his sister and went maybe she was dead weight. She knew it'd be hard convincing family that they were in love with one another with the two months of preparation alone, let alone none. Acting, obviously, wasn't her forte. Or lying. "Hey," she said, wondering if Kaia would know her by name. But then again, she probably knew her as the tutor or something like that. "Um....I mean, yes, I like to think that Florian and I are friends. It's very important for any marriage to succeed." That was the worst way to say no, we're engaged. "But fiance is probably the better terminology to use. I'm Grace! I heard about your recent promotion, congratulations!" Compliment, compliment, compliment. Gracie was aware how Kaia found out about all of this and for someone to be like that made Gracie cringe. First thought was how could someone be like that? but maybe because Gracie would never do something like that herself. Surely he's going to get full custody. He's clearly the better parent.

Kaia's jaw almost drops. She's lucky enough to have experience with big revelations that she instead can take a pacifying breath rather than react in a way that might make Gracie feel any bit uncomfortable. However disappointed she is in her brother and his apparent secret life, she doesn't think it's fair to take it out on his fiancée. Her future sister-in-law. She's barely over Eleni getting married, how the hell is she supposed to cope with her baby brother tying the knot with someone else? This family keeps growing by the day. She'll lose track at some point of who belongs to who. The more Kaia thinks about it, the more confused she feels. If the baby was born prematurely, he slept with the mother about seven months ago. The most burning question right now is: did Florian cheat on his then-girlfriend? Or is this a quick romance? Kaia isn't sure what's worse. To say more, if he cheated on Gracie, she wouldn't be able to see him in the same light. She's been the abandoned woman before, and nothing else hurt more like being cornered into that position. It doesn't make sense, though; Florian was very vocal about his anger towards Clarence, so was he just being a hypocrite? Kaia is trying hard to not assume the worst of her brother, but she's finding it's becoming harder with every passing day. She breathes in again, this time much more deeply. Eleni is going to have to deal with this, because Kaia doesn't know if she can anymore. Some of the tension in her muscles dissipates, and her expression softens just enough that she can push for a tight smile. "Thank you," she nods politely. Kaia sits next to Gracie, practically melting into the chair. "Congratulations on your engagement." The words feel so weird in her mouth, but she knows they're due no matter how she feels. "How... how long have you two been engaged?"

Now this was Gracie thinking on her feet. Remind her to catch Florian up to speed with whatever spills out of her mouth now. She didn't feel it right by saying two hours. "About a month now?" She said. Gracie could see the wheels in Kaia's head spinning as she processed what Gracie just revealed and knew, with the whole baby situation, that cheating was a clear possibility. "We started seeing each other about five months ago now. Nearly six." Maybe a small gap between his break up and with her but better than an overlap. "We became friends when she broke up with him." There was a slight emphasis on she. Maybe because Gracie, even though all of it was a lie, didn't want Kaia to think she'd been the reason they broke up. Gracie wasn't a homewrecker. Nor was she a gold digger, even though arguably she was in dire need of some gold. "I suppose...I suppose this isn't quite what you expected to be dealing with on your first day as the head," she said, trying to empathise with the other woman. Maybe it wasn't her place. No, this wasn't her place. She shouldn't have said that. This was starting off great. She knew a little about Kaia through word of mouth. Zoe...Zoe had a big mouth once you got onto her good side, and neither her or Felton were a quiet duo whenever they were thrown into the same room. Should Gracie mention how exactly they met? Was that important? She technically knew her son. No, it didn't matter. Not right now.
